Dead to Me

Trump Cubs WP.jpgI was so happy for the Chicago Cubs won the Major League Baseball World Series.  The team with the worst luck in Baseball; cursed to an endless drought on their road to a return FINALLY did it.

Chicago isn’t my team (I have a team), but, I still pull for them almost any time I see them playing.

Until now.  They blew it.  They visited the White House when they won.  As winners of the series do every year.  President Obama hosted them.   It was really special.  But, they for some reason accepted an invitation to go again.

So they could kiss Trump’s ring, or something.

Well, at least they got some shady memories.  What it did to them was slap another curse on them.  The kind of curse that makes you wait another hundred years to win the World Series again.  I mean, they could have gained a game on the tight race for 1st place.  But, nope.  Fate had other plans.  Their league leader lost, providing them an opportunity.

But, the cubs lost too.  Ironically, perhaps, to the Washington Nationals.

Cubs LOSS

Just for craps and grins, a little news from the joke of a ceremony:

One of the players, outfielder Albert Almora Jr.

it was reported by careful citizen media watchers who combed through the footage, that player Albert Almora Jr. was subtly flipping baby-hands the bird.  Of course, Cubs sponsors have arranged for Albert to deny he was doing any such thing.  But, we know.

There are Monsters in your Closet

Trumpster brownshirts actually, ACTUALLY believe Trump’s BS. It’s frightening. When Goebbels was Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, he said:
 
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”  ~ Joseph Goebbels
 
Trump is just following a playbook, but adding in an infinite amount of little, stupid lies. He suffocates people around him in little, ridiculous lies so they are forced to look straight ahead or drown.
 
Listen to them answer questions a REPUBLICAN poses
 
 

Trumpcare is Terminal

USA REPUBLICANS SENATEThe Senate has taken some hard body shots this week because it has come out that as HORRIBLE the House Trumpcare bill was, the Senate’s is much, much worse.  At least for everyone not in it to mine for huge tax cuts to their riches.

CNBC –> http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/21/opposition-to-republican-obamacare-replacement-grows-even-among-gop.html

Well, I don’t think Trump will be able to hack it in battle.  Coward.  He’ll try to blame it on “obstructionist democrats” and just say, “fine, keep your Obamacare and enjoy the poorhouse.”

It will give him a foil to perpetually campaign about.  “Obama and his secret socialist healthcare DISASTER that we have to fight, fight, fight, ‘cos he has a bunker in Washington, and he’s coming with NATO strike forces to TAKE YOUR GUNS!”

There won’t be a “repeal/replace” orgy.  So, we need to focus on the next target for his destructive, flea’s attention span.

Extraordinary Measures

It was on this day in 1953 that the US executed Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for treason and espionage against the United States.

64 years ago, they fried in electrified chairs.

Sizzled.

History Channel –>  http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/julius-and-ethel-rosenberg-executed

That was supposed to be a lesson to all those who would follow that there are consequences to one’s actions.  Especially — ESPECIALLY — when those actions include colluding with an enemy of the state.  Imagine what the punishment might look like if it included throwing US Presidential elections.

No, go ahead.  It’s OK.  Be like John Lennon.  Imagine.  There may be no facts in their inbred bubble, but Truth and Justice will always break through that kind of firewall.

Side note, Donald Trump was pretty much a toddler when the last US execution for espionage was carried out.  Reminds me of a song of cycle:

Republicans. Projection Artists.

projection WPRepublicans — as an entity — project. Any time you hear a Republican complain about what a Democrat is doing? Any time you hear a Republican screaming about what a Democrat is? He (it’s more often than not a he) is projecting.

It’s always interesting to watch an individual do it. Psychology. What’s REALLY interesting is how an entire demographic of deplorable serial lying bigoted misogynists projects in unison.  Organized projection.  Engineered sociological weaponization of ignorance and self-hate.

There is nearly endless example of this sad truth.  All you have to do is turn on the news and hear pretty much ANY Republican speak on any issue.  Seriously.  Try it.  Everything they say is projection, anymore.  Here is one that takes the goon trophy.  A curiously devilish preacher named Jessie Lee’s a Peter’s Son kind of disgustingly speaks of Democrats worshipping “satan” at the Congressional baseball game, the other day as everyone prayed.  We live in days where the least likely and least qualified to speak for a god of any sort are the ones screaming loudest about it.

Good News, Bad News, Outrageous

destroyer

Thankfully, the bodies of the seven missing sailors in the collision with the Japanese freighter were found in flooded compartments in the damaged destroyer. The families who were in shock with worry can now comfort each other and begin to heal.

CNN –>  http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/17/us/missing-sailors-found/index.html

Unfortunately, Trump hasn’t bothered to appoint a Secretary of the Navy, nor has he made sure we have an ambassador to Japan. Our destroyer may sink in Japanese waters and there is no navy leadership to deal with it. The sailors’ bodies sit in a Japanese dock and their families can’t look to an American ambassador to help them deal with that.

That’s bad enough, but to add insult to injury, Trump is too busy to deal with it.  On a Father’s Day Vacation at Camp David with the poster wife and weird son-grandson, “Barron.”  Of course, he can still find time to Tweet about how evil Cuba is and how impressive his election win was.  And, his wife coudn’t give a nickel about the whole thing.

Melania Tweet Camp David Sailors Missing

Late Breaking:  Baby-hands tweeted and mentioned the missing sailors.  He sent “prayers” though everyone knows he mocks the concept of there being a god outside of his impression of himself.  He thanked Japan.  For doing the job that he himself isn’t qualified to handle himself.

Dirtbag Russian double agent dirtbag.  Our President, LOL.  What a disgraceful day.

Schumer Calls Out SUPER-SHADY Republican Senators

Dem ACA Schumer Speech Header WPThe biggest news right now isn’t the monumentally epic Russian Spy US government takeover story.  Nope.  What’s going on in the shadows is even more frightening.

The video below shows Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sounded the alarm speaking in Senate chambers today.  Following is Chris Hayes explaining exactly what Mitch McConnel is doing, with the help of Andrew Slavitt, the recently “recent” administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Here is a Washington Post article about the shady dealings, and below it, the video.

Check This Off Your List Yet, Ted?

Ted Nugent DOUHE WP

Yeah, OK, so Ted Nugent just said after the Alexandria shooting yesterday where a Republican Congressperson was shot, that he would tone down his disgusting, hateful, riot-inducing fire in a theater speech now.

Yahoo News –>  https://www.yahoo.com/tv/ted-nugent-promises-stop-hateful-rhetoric-alexandria-shooting-205716922.html

It doesn’t matter what he says or does at this point in his failed career or self-sabatoged waste of a life.  No one is going to hear him sing fake songs of unity and go buy his angry, hateful crap.   And, if you need a reminder as to all of the DISGUSTING, albeit blah, blah, “they say this shit every day” garbage that has left Nugent’s mouth and become FOX news Op Ed headline goodness, here’s a nice article detailing his best of:

Media Matters –>  https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2014/02/21/here-are-13-other-repugnant-comments-ted-nugent/198174

Republicans are very hopeful that after decades of hate and lies and just endless foul behavior — now that they are almost assured to lose control of both the House and the US Senate, that if they just cry: “Can’t we all just get along?” that ppl will just forget that there is a filthy, rabid, hateful skunk running around the house stinking it up and that we’ll be too humane to just euthanize it with a baseball bat before it can kill everyone in their beds.    Not this time, Nazis.

I heard this Nugent story on Facebook.  An anti-Trump group.  One thing I like about groups like that is that I don’t have to hold my tongue, LOL.  Here is me not holding my tongue there.
